Lots of us on our own tonight! DH went offshore yesterday on an overtime trip to pay for the big move! He did call this morning and sent me on a wild goose chase around the house to find a card and flowers all nice in a jar though!

Hope you get sorted tomorrow Hmcfeather and fee better soon.

I think I've started to feel baby properly, which is rather exciting! Apart from that just majorly stressed with house selling! Wish it was all over and we get a top notch offer! Xxx

Hello girls, firstly happy valentines day to you all and secondly im so sorry ive been rubbish at contributing to all the interesting chat thats been going on. I do read but just dont get a chance to post as jayden constantly needs my attnetion at the moment, think he is teething again.
I have a question for those of you on your second pregnancy...did u feel your baby move sooner or later than u did the first time round?
Only im getting worried bout my bubba as I felt jayden moving regularly from 16 weeks and I know this from my pregnancy diary where as this time ive not felt anyyhing and im now 17+1 weeks!! I check his heartbeat everyday with my monitor and its always loud and strong and I can hear him swishing around but I just cant feel it, not at all which I find very strange. I keep reading everywhere that your meant to feel movement earlier with your second pregnancies so now im worried. I am a slim woman too so its not that I have extra fat this time either. What do u all think? X

Hi Lisa, try not to worry hun esp as you've got Doppler to hear hb. It is normal to feel movement earlier but you might find if the placenta is at the front you just don't feel same movement as the placenta kind of absorbs the kicks xx

If you're worried speak to your midwife but it's probably to do with way baby is lying and kicking out. It's only been the last couple of days were I've felt movement anywhere other than very low down and it's still mostly there. My LO is lying transversely mostly so must why the feelings are so low down!!

I tried to call my midwife today but her phone was off as usual, I'll try her again tomorrow. I know I sound crazy worrying when I can hear his heartbeat but cant help it, I don't think the worry ever stops does it. X

Oh add me the to home alone on Valentines list, DP is away all week with work in London, I came home to a lovely bunch of long stemmed red roses...looking forward to him getting home tomorrow night.

RG and Heather - sorry to hear you are both still feeling awful, I hope it lifts very soon for you both. I'm finally starting to perk up, looking forward to getting to the gym this weekend, I feel like all I've done for the last 10 days is work, eat and sleep!

AG - do you have a closing date? Is the selling process the same over there? It must be hard keeping things tidy for prospective buyers with a little one x

Lisa Lou - try not to fret, if you can hear the heartbeat, everything must be just fine x

Moogle - 5am...yuck, I have one of those once a month, commuting south, I get picked up at 4:50....not fun at all, thankfully I can only fly with my company up to week 32, so only 2 or 3 more crazy early starts for me x

Sorry you've got this worry Lisa but as the others have said, as long as you can hear LO's hb then everything must be fine and dandy. I cant feel a thing yet but with this being my second pregnancy i wonder if i'll start feeling flutterings in the next few weeks. I was well over 20 weeks before i felt Evie.

Glad you're perking up EE, its a snot-fest here still. I suffered with a lot of nasal congestion with Evie but i know this is definitely a cold. Blooming flu jab!!

Quick question folks!! As i've got this yucky cold i'm sneezing a lot and often feel a really big cramp/muscle pull in my uterus that hurts when i sneeze. It doesn't last long but was wondering if anyone else has had it??? I'm not overly worried but dont remember having it before.

Have you got a good pregnancy relaxation cd AG? I love putting my headphones on and having a chill-out whenever i can, definitely helps me de-stress.

Lisa Lou. - try not to worry, every pregnancy is different and every baby is different. I would say I've felt movement a bit earlier with this baby, but my placenta is in a different position and this baby (going from the scans) seems more active than my daughter was. It can also be to do with how much water you have cushioning things, you just might have more water this time. If you can hear the heartbeat, then that is the main thing.

EE - the selling process is so, so different here. It goes on the Internet on Monday onto a site used in Norway to sell everything, including property, the newspaper next Friday and then they have a showing the following Tuesday when everyone who is interested comes at once to see the house. so just need it mega tidy for then! At the moment we're clearing out and trying to get some stuff shipped to declutter the house. The next day the bidding process starts. People who are really interested put their name on a list at the showing and when the bidding starts the estate agent calls everyone and says we've had a bid of X, would you like to increase? This goes on until someone wins, so no blind bidding. If we get one decent offer I'd be happy. So, by next Wednesday we could have sold the house, fingers, toes and eveything crossed.

RG the pregnancy relaxation CD sounds immense! i must get one! Xxx

Thanks RG...yes I have that same cramp feeling when I sneeze, I had it when I was pregnant with Hayden too. Its only when I sneeze if I'm lying flat, so have to make sure I crunch my legs up before I sneeze now cause it does hurt. So yeah dont worry must just be our tender muscles not liking the sudden extra tense and pull x

Welcome RG, ,good to see you in here, I have had those pains from very early on, coughing sneezing, laughing and so ethimes even just turning over in bed caused the pain, think its the ligaments stretching, really low down to either left or right side, feels like tight elastic band pulling mega tight, eases off eventually. It's cos the uterus is suspended with only the ligaments holding it in place so when they get stretched it hurts like hell. Def nothing to worry about x x x x

Ladies just a quicky I have posted a thread about this but not really had much replies. Yesterday I noticed a new stretch mark already! Lol didn't get my first one with dd till about 7months so if I have a new one already is it likely I'm gonna get covered in even more new ones lol (I already have loads but now faded) ladies who have had 2nd,3rd babies etc did u get new stretchys with them or just restretch old ones and don't think the creams make any difference as I used cocoa butter on my belly 3 times a day with dd an still look like a tiger now (proudly wearin her stripes lol) x

Rallygirl I also get that when sneezing or coughing lol but I know can't fall out with me as been stitched up! Ha ha x

Afternoon all hope you are all doing well!

I am with you on all the coughing and sneezing feelings I feel lots of stretching! And yes I get the same feeling that I feel baby is going to fall out!

Westmidsgirl I too have got new stretch marks this time round midwife says it will happen as you carry each pregnancy differently. I am definitely a different shape this time round with ds I went all round and this time I am going outwards!

AG I hope all goes well next week with your house sale.

Lisa I go through days where lo seems quiet and I don't feel movement but I find if I drink a glass of very cold water I soon get a movement!

AFM I discovered that lo loves live music dp and I went out for dinner last night and when the live music came on and lo was moving non stop and when it stopped so did lo it was really funny!!

I hope you all have a good weekend.
Take care

Happy Saturday ladies! Busy wee place these days, innit? ;)

I'm another one who had Valentine's on my tod this year (1st time ever!), but it was me away from home, not DH. I had a lovely romantic evening to myself in an airport Travelodge - but at least I had the yummy choccies my good fella had left out for me the night before. And he even did roses this year - I must've been a good girl!

Lisa, as the other girls have said, every pregnancy is different - some babies are just more active than others, and some like to get comfy in positions where we can't really feel them much. I did feel number 2 a good few weeks earlier than number 1, but number 3 a little later than number 2... At this stage you really don't need to worry about baby's movements (try telling myself that!), especially if there's a nice reassuring hb there. It's always worth the extra reassurance from your mw though.

WMG, I have so many stretch marks I don't think I'd notice any new ones now! Keep slapping on the cocoa butter, bio-oil, whatever - it should at least make them a little shallower.

Rally hun, I've had those pains too. Thankfully it passes quickly eh?

AG, will have everything crossed for a quick and smooth house sale next week. Not long now till you're back in Bonnie Scotland! xfingers

Hello to EE, RW, Heather, Nic and anyone I've missed... that's as far as I can scroll down! xxx

Lisalou fingers crossed for u and glad u been feeling bubba move. I'm not too worried if I do get covered again I suppose as they did fade after my daughter so I'm sure any new ones will too! Lol x

Happy Sunday ladies

The sun is shining what a change

As far as stretch marks go I can't help as these 2 little bubs are my first, however I was highly recommended the body shop cocoa butter stick so though I would give it a bash, when I went online to order it they had 40 percent off too so got a bargain. I have been using it ever since it arrived and actually put my bio oil and palmers stuff away as the stick is so easy to use and I love sitting rolling it onto my belly it almost feels like a massage in itself. Early days (only 19 weeks) but no stretch marks so far and believe me my tummy has certainly stretched.

I have been feeling my lil ones moving from 14 weeks and actually started to feel a couple of kicks with my hand, not often. Over the last couple of days I really haven't felt babies as often and there movements not as strong, should I be concerned at this stage. Been thinking about it lots.

Back to the Doppler, I am now re considering buying one because I have not felt as much movement lately and it might offer reassurance. Also I have heard that you can record the sounds and play it back when babies are here and it supposed to help them sleep.

Getting keys for new house next week so off to ikea for some ideas and I am thinking about joining Costco as it may save money when buying in bulk in the future.

AG I totally forgot to answer you ages ago about where I live, yeah I live in Stirling, riverside is such a lovely wee place, don't know it very well but have been through it several times x x x

They say it actually boils down to depending on genetics though don't they like if ur mom had them an ur nan then u will most likely get them... I don't believe any oils or creams etc stop them but may make them not so bad I suppose as I said I used to use cocoa butter 3 times a day every day from about 3 months to when I had my daughter and was still covered x

I will keep going with my cocoa butter stick, as its a way of me relaxing massaging my preggers belly, only put it on in the evening, I think the same if your gonna get them your gonna get them and I have heard that it is quite a genetic thing. If I end up with stripes I will be proud of them anyhoo but so far so good x x x

Hey All
I might get that stick nic it sounds good. I have a cream but its a faf!! No marks for me yet but my tummy is growing now.
It does worry me reading how much u feel ur Los and I don't. I'm 20 weeks and barely feel anything. One of my placenta is anterior so am wondering if that's the reason. Like u nic I wish I had a Doppler but my gp and Dh r adamant it would be a bad idea as would be so hard to find two heartbeats. Let me know what u decide nic xxx

Quick update from me as have house full of family. Am exhausted being host and u end up doing more than u should. Had scan but babies wouldn't turn over properly so have to go back on 28th so they can finish anomaly scan. What they did see was ok. I fainted having scan, was really ill. They think its the pressure from how the babies r Lying inside as being on my back put too much pressure on me. I had to finish the scan on my side. So was a little disappointed didn't get the full all clear but plus side is I get to see them again in a weeks time so pretty pleased with that.

I have my first meeting with consultant today. People keep telling me what I need to buy/get and I find it all quite overwhelming. Just want to take it one step at a time...still fully accepting that this is real!!

Anyways sorry for lack of personals , will catch up v soon xxxxx

Dam just wrote a huge post cherlou and lost it argh, eyes completely shutting so will keep it short soz, everyone is totally different and anterior placenta will def make it harder to feel babies. Docs not concerned about movement till after 24 weeks at all, I think I have just been mega lucky to feel mine early. Plus both at front and one in front of other almost x

Don't think gonna other with Doppler as DH says I would just freak out if couldn't find the heart beats.

So sorry you felt I'll through scan, is it to do with weight of uterus on one of your veins as heard can make you dizzy lying on back, I have anomaly scan on Friday. Few of my friends had to go back again as babies not playing ball.

Off to bed now girls, catch up tomorrow

Morning Ladies, hope you're all doing ok.

Just want to ask you all if you have any advise on colds?? I've been feeling crap for over 2 weeks now :thumbdown: (since getting my blinking flu jab) and have such a stinking cold i feel awful. :poorly: I've no energy and am desperate for a wee boost to try and pick myself up. Is there anything i could take?? Lucozade is probably quite good but my tummy is so sensitive with this pregnancy i think the fizz might reek havoc with my guts. I'm taking a multi-vitamin pregnancy tablet a day that has everything in it and I'm having to take a nasal spray at night cos i just cant breathe, i have checked and its safe to use a basic decongestant spray every-so-often.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. So sorry for not doing a proper post but am just feeling so sorry for myself just now!! :tears:

You are not meant to have lucozade while pregnant its an energy drink and full of caffiene. Also I was really ill with flu few weeks back and asked pharmacist what I could take and they said all you can have is paracetamol and that stuff u put in hot water and inhale it in... I got that and took paracetamol and it did help... Its not great havin flu whilst preg as there's not a fat lot u can take! Hope u feeling better soon xx

Hi girls,

RG - I'm sorry you're feeling awful still. Have you tried Olbas oil in host water as Westmidsgirl says? I used the stick you breathe in your noise, it sounds silly but I was totally blocked but it still amazed to get through, albeit only for a moment or two before I blocked up again, but it did help especially at night.

I think as this is my first baby, feeling movement won't come till a little later? I have been feeling not cramping, but a tightening maybe...I can't describe it, I'm putting it down to my baby growing and uterus expanding again.

I had a lovely day with DP yesterday walking about Edinburgh in the sunshine, I think that may have been the first sun I've seen his year!

Sorry your feeling poorly rally girl, I have heard so many people feeling poorly after their flu jag, defeats the purpose really but suppose its to prevent flu and not really bad colds. I would go with the inhalation thingy, I have drunk little amounts of lucozade, everything in moderation. When I didn't feel much movement I was told to drink a sugary drink. When I start feeling like I have the cold I up my vitamin c, lots of orange juice and oranges etc.

Always a trams with me, today we sent a little boy home from nursery with suspected scarlet fever and it turns out it may be slapped cheek so I have had a blood test to see if I am immune, if I am then supposedly is fine, if not then I have to have another test in fortnight and if I am immune then I may have contracted the disease and will be referred to hospital. It is very severe if affected, I am very worried yet again. I have wanted to be pregnant for so long and now I just wish the end of June would hurry up so I can hold my babies. I am loving my bump though and being pregnant but I just never thought I would worry so much. I just love

Bless ya nic, hope it all comes back clear for you, you could really do without the worry.

Thanks Westmidsgirl and everyone for your tips. Feeling slightly better this morning but it's the afternoon that is my worse time of day. I dug my old facial steamer out the cupboard and got the olbas oil out. It helped but like EE said, only for a few minutes. I dropped some on a tissue and kept sniffing it all day and that helped too. Think i just have to ride this out. I agree with you nic that a wee drink of lucozade is probably ok in moderation. My sis-in-law said it was her life saver when she was pregnant and feeling really sick. They say the caffeine limit in a day is 200mg but it's difficult to tell how much caffeine is in things so i guess that's why they advise you to stay away from it.

I was in Edinburgh at the weekend EE, it is a beautiful city but i'm bias cos its my hometown.

Scan and meeting with consultant on Monday, cant wait to see our little one again.

Take care peeps!!

Afternoon ladies, just a quick check-in while small fry is eating his lunch :yumyum:

Nic, it's so true that the worry never stops. I feel the same, just wanting to fast-forward time till I can bring my baby home... A couple of us on here went through the slapped cheek scare a few weeks ago - my little boy had a suspected infection, and I turned out not to be immune, but fortunately all my bloods came back negative for the virus. I'm sure all will be fine with you, and keep in mind if you are close to 20 weeks now, the risk to your babies from slapped cheek is negligible from 20 weeks.

Rally, glad you're feeling a bit better and hope you continue to recover! Another bump-safe remedy is Manuka honey, it's antibacterial so won't combat the cold virus as such but can help with any secondary infections that linger on, and is good for overall health. Great you've got another scan coming up soon hun :)

Cher, so pleased everything is going well with your LOs, sorry to hear you were unwell at the scan though. Hopefully the next one'll be more comfortable and you'll have complete reassurance afterwards.

All is quiet with me... bubs a little too quiet for my liking tbh, but am trying not to stress as it's still fairly early, and I am feeling movements every day now : D

Hope everyone else is doing great, catch up again soon! xxxx

Quiet on here at the moment, guess we are all just plodding on.

Just popped in to say hello to everyone. :hi:

I'm gradually feeling a little better every day, :pray: this cold will be gone soon. On the plus side, i've felt a couple of wee ripples inside, especially after a coughing fit and i'm sure it's poor baby telling me to stop jiggling!!!

Love to all.

Hello ladies,

Sorry I've been awol the past week but just been up to my eyes with work and doing stuff with girls by the time I get them to bed in the evenings I am too knackered to post!!

RG - I hope you feel better soon. I spoke to my GP and he is cross I haven't had my flu jab and when I said I wasn't going to bother now as flu season is nearly over he got even crosser saying that it is more important for swine flu and that isn't seasonal and it can be very dangerous when pregnant. I said about the side effects and he said it isn't a live strain of the flu so will not make me sick!! Even so I've to wait for my antibiotics for throat infection to be over and then I think I will get it at 28 week with the Whooping Cough jab as well.

Nic - hope you get the all clear for slapped cheek. I think you are wise about the doppler with twins because you would never know which one you were hearing. Even with one at times it can be hard with baby moving around so much. I get a quick listen and then baby moves and it is gone.

Cher - I was the same with the twins I couldn't lie on my back from early on with the pressure and weight of the babies.

Moogle - the movement is hard to measure sometimes. I was told by the hospital last time if you feel them about 10 times in the day then all should be ok. But that was when I was much further on than now.

EE - your walk in Edinburgh in the sunshine sounds absolutely lovely : D

About the caffeine thing I know we are not meant to have much of it but it is truly the only thing I seem to be craving between diet coke and cups of tea I am sure I am having too much but I am being good in all other ways so I reckon if it is my only vice during pregnancy it can't be that bad, can it??

Sorry to those I have left out but I've gotta rush as I am running late in work here and need to pick up the girls xx

Evening ladies

Rally girl so glad you are feeling better and I do hope the cold is gone soon, loving that you are starting to feel your baby too, it's so reassuring isn't it.

Moogle I am really not sure the little boy was diagnosed correctly as we have had a childs case of scarlet fever and now one of the staff has been told she may have symptoms of it too. Apparently scarlet fever causes no harm to the unborn baby and if do develop symptoms I would be prescribed antibiotics. Although I am glad to be tested for slapped cheek just in case. Very worrying though and takes ages for results to come back.

Hmcfeather I think I am going to give the whole Doppler thing a miss I would just end up worrying all the more.

Lisa Lou the weeks are flying by for me too, it's great x

Well I am feeling my 2 lil bubbas more and more each day it's just the most a axing feeling and I think I am so lucky to feel them so early, I can feel them with my hands now and the lil one on the right who I think is a girl kicked so hard that she actually moved the iPad, I was shocked, obviously telling me to stop resting iPad on her, poor little thing.

Well 20 week scan tomorrow and the get the keys to our new house, eek, so excited but so nervous too, probably won't have much time to get on here as have lots of painting to do.

Enjoy your scan Nic, come back and tell all if you get the chance, I'm sure you'll be too excited with that and your house move!

RG - glad you're feeling a little better, another few days and you'll be fighting fit again x

Lisa Lou - your week with your nephew sounds fun. Nothing planned this weekend for me other than getting to the gym!

Hmcfeather - I mange to give up caffeine, I've moved to Lavazza decaf, it's really good, but every few days can't turn down a diet coke. I'm sure the little caffeine from it here and there is ok x

Hope the scan goes well today Nic and those babies behave themselves for you. x

Lisa, good for you looking after your nephew for a week. Mine is only 5 and never stops, he'd run me ragged but it would be lovely to see him for a whole week but my sis lives in Chippenham and i'm in East Scotland so dont get to see him much (or my 2 gorgeous nieces). DH is in the RAF though, so we'll be back down south in the future, that's where most of our postings are. Got a shopping trip in Edinburgh planned for the weekend. x

Hmcfeather, surely it's a personal choice that you get the flu jab? I suppose it is your GP's job to advise you strongly to get it but i wouldn't have thought he could make you. It's obviously safer not to take risks though. I knew that the vaccine is not live and my nurse told me that you can get the "sniffles" after and because our immune systems are lower when pregnant, i guess that is why so many of us end up poorly. Just a pity that the "sniffles" turn into a great big sodding cold!! Fingers crossed you are fine when you do eventually have yours. xfingers x

Moogle hun, thanks for the honey tip, will give it a go. Even though cold is lifting i'll still try it, i love honey!! x

Hiya to EE, AG, Cherlou, Redwillow and everyone else i've missed. Have a great weekend.

RG of course it is a personal choice and he can't force me. I can just picture him running after me with the needle trying to jab me :snigger: Suppose I just never really thought of it being more than the seasonal flu. I will definitely think about it when I get my whooping cough jab. He did say that with the unprecendented rise in whooping cough this year it is really important to get WC vaccine when we are between 28-30 weeks as this will provide some immunity for baby when they are born to 8 weeks when they get their own jabs for it. This is definitely different from last time when it was not mentioned to me.

Anyone else really impatient to hold their baby in their arms right now? I am not tempting fate or wishing for LO to be born early I just can't wait to hold her in my arms and look at her. I love being pregnant just so want it to be start of June now and then I know it will only be a couple of days until I meet her :D

Yeah Hmc, i'm definitely getting the whooping cough jab. When i was nursing I looked after very young babies with whooping cough and it was really scary to see them struggling for breath so definitely a :thumbsup: on that one.

I'm very impatient to meet my little one but for very different reasons. Wish i could enjoy this pregnancy but it's really tough.

Oh I totally understand RG there is always something to worry about and just generally fret about. I know that really I should relax as so far everything has been perfect but can't help but worry about her not growing as well as she should. When I say I love being pregnant - I love my bump and feeling the movement and knowing that I am growing a little person inside me but yes I will be able to relax better when she arrives. It is weird because I promised myself if all was good by 20 weeks I would relax a little, then it became 24 weeks and then I would relax and now it's 28 weeks!!

RW - hope you get that flat sorted out sharpish for your yucky sil : D

I'm not entirely sure I feel pregnant yet....maybe it'll change when I feel movement, and I have a definite bump and not just a massive waist and boobs!?
